Sophomore Chase Polacek scored his second goal of the game just nine seconds into overtime to give Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute a wild 7-6 vict­ory over St. Lawrence in an ECAC Hockey game at Appleton Arena.

The win allowed the Engineers (5-6-1, 6-16-2) to extend their unbeaten streak to four games (3-0-1) and move into a tie for sixth place in the league.

Polacek took the puck off the faceoff to open the overtime, cut from right to left in front of Saints goalie Kain Tisi and put a shot inside the post.

The Saints had a 5-3 lead in the third period before the Engineers battled back. Patrick Cullen scored his eighth goal of the year for RPI 1t 14:05, and Polacek tied the game with 1:22 left in regulation.

Kurt Colling’s third goal of the season, with 48.8 seconds remainbing, gave RPI a 6-5 lead, but St. Lawrence coach Joe Marsh pulled Tisi for an extra attacker, and Brock McBride scored his eighth goal of the year with 10 seconds left to force overtime.
